Linen Maya Button-up Top

It's been a hectic start to the new year, with family visiting from overseas and a house move, and while my sewing machine sits in a box waiting to get unpacked I thought I'd share a recent make – another linen Maya top!


My white linen Maya Top has become such a wardrobe favourite that I thought I'd make another version. Marilla Walker's Maya pattern comes with a few different options – this is view B, with a button band down the front.


As with my previous version I made a size 4. I added sleeve cuffs and a small pocket, and raised the neckline a touch. I seem to be on a bit of a linen kick lately, but it's so perfect for warm weather sewing. This is made up in some lovely paprika milled linen from the Fabric Store. I finished the top off with some bamboo buttons from Lincraft.


This was my first time sewing a button-up without a collar, and while it was a quick and satisfying sew I think I prefer my first version, without the buttons. Maybe I just miss having a collar? Still, I do really like this pattern, and I love this colour, so I'm sure this top will still get plenty of wear.

  2. That color is THE BEST...I've been jealous of Australian gardens all my Boston winter and now I'm jealous of Australian linen. I think maybe the collarless Maya could feel more "finished" if it had an down-angled neck instead of a straight-across neck? But I'm not mad at yours at all. : )

    1. Thank you Lia! I hadn't thought of doing a down-angled neck - I might try that next time!
